Greenpeace activists hang a 70 square metre banner at the petrol company OKQ8¹s headquarters for the second day in a row. Greenpeace are protesting that the company has not abandoned their plans to introduce a palm oil based bio diesel. OKQ8¹s introduction of the palm oil diesel would be the first of its kind in the industrialized world and a successful launch would cause a huge increase in the demand for palm oil. The police stopped the demonstration after a few hours. OKQ8 gave into Greenpeace demands and completely backed away from palm oil later that evening.
